Taste Real

Delivering memorable, authentic local food experiences

A fundamental evolution in food today is the movement to buy local. It is a call that resonates throughout Wellington County, and the practice is readily supported by many area residents and restaurateurs. With the diversity of over 100 local farms and markets, anyone looking for farm-fresh produce—from fruits, vegetables and dairy to maple syrup, elk, beef or ostrich meat and more—doesn’t have far to go. It’s all right here.

 

Today, people are connecting with food in new ways. We’re more conscious of how far our food travels, of who grows it and where. The way we eat, and how we think about eating, cooking and buying food is changing too.

Throughout our community, you’ll see many examples of what we’re doing to share and promote the bounty of these lands. Through initiatives like taste•real, we are actively connecting businesses with agriculture, chefs with growers, and ultimately, locally-produced food with residents and visitors alike. Small retail food stores and Bed & Breakfasts are meeting with one another to build partnerships that combine individual strengths and resources. The commitment to local food is everywhere.

We’re doing it all in the spirit of community. You could say we are returning to our roots. Like many people, we know that sustainable farming is not an option, it’s a necessity; that the local food movement is not a trend, but a fundamental transformation in the collective mindset of communities across Ontario, and perhaps around the world. We are a proud and active part of that change.
